Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1275365
Problems in upgrade documentation
Last modified: 2015-12-16 03:58:47 EST
This was reported from a customer.
1. /opt is required to be specific size. The customer case, the required size was 2G and 1.3G being set. The consultant increased the partition to 5G to get the upgrade going, but after the upgrade, the usage dropped down to 1.3G again.
The docs 1) need to specify some kind of sizing guidelines and 2) cover *what* the directory is being used for (like temporary storage during the upgrade).
2. The "katello-upgrade" example changes some settings from 6.0. The consultant specifies:
* Proxy settings. If you have special characters in the password, you need to get your escape characters right or it won't work.
* TFTP settings
I don't know if this is specified (I haven't checked), but I do know that the Satellite files are not supposed to be edited directly. If they are edited outside of the katello-* commands, then it loses that configuration if katello-install (and possibly katello-upgrade?) is ever run.
3. Sat 6.1 requires new channel called "Red Hat Satellite 6.1 Tools
Channel," so the manifest needs to be recreated to include the channel. Also, recreating the manifest may require removing all the subscriptions from
the Satellite entry in the portal and adding things back. When the consultant did this, he encountered a database error. The error isn't in the email, but that may need to be mentioned or there may be a workaround.
